Now on Exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art
Significant Collection Represents Local Treasure and History
A longtime supporter of Lake Tahoe culture, Chase International recently stepped up to support the Nevada Museum of Art’s brand new exhibit that comprises the museum’s entire 15,000 square feet of gallery space, TAHOE: A Visual History.
Located in downtown Reno, the museum’s remarkable collection of Tahoe and Donner art and artifacts has been five years in the making, and features more than 400 works by 175 painters, photographers, architects, basket weavers, and sculptors. Ann M. Wolfe, senior curator for the museum, says it’s the first major art historical survey exhibition of one of America’s most beloved landscapes.
“This exhibit rivals anything you would see in New York or London,” said Shari Chase, founder and CEO of Chase International. “Without hesitation we supported the museum and its efforts to honor and showcase Lake Tahoe, an enchanting place that has been an integral part of our lives both personally and professionally.”
The exhibit opened August 22 and will close January 10, 2016. Featured artifacts include historical maps, paintings, photography, architectural surveys, Native American baskets, sculptures, and contemporary artwork. A 488-page book by the same name and featuring much of the exhibit’s pieces will be co-published by Skira Rizzoli and the museum and distributed by Random House. Chase was one of several regional companies, organizations, and families instrumental in bringing the exhibit to life. To learn more about the exhibit, visit NevadaArt.org.
